The Broadcast, Publications and Arts Appeal Committee (BPAAC) is an advisory committee appointed by the Minister for Communications and Information. When requested by Minister, the BPAAC provides its independent views on appeals which may be lodged with the Minister by parties aggrieved by decisions undertaken by the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) or the Arts Entertainment Licensing Officer (AELO), as the case may be, in relation to content regulatory matters. Examples of matters on which appeals can be made include:

Decisions by MDA in relation to breaches of applicable legislation, content codes or guidelines, such as the Free-To-Air Television Programme Code and the Subscription Television Programme Code; and

Directions by the AELO to licensees in relation to the content of any arts entertainment.
